[Note from Robert Spencer: Introducing Jay Tuch of American Israeli Patriot, who has kindly agreed to post here also. Welcome, Jay!]
It’s hard to believe that despite our entering into the “enlightened” 21st century, Europe has not changed very much. Here are the results from an ADL poll of 5 countries; France, Italy, Germany, Spain, and Poland; all from the continent that brought you a Holocaust, Pogroms, blood libels and an Inquisition.
This is from the ADL, “ADL Survey in Five European Countries Finds Anti-Semitic Attitudes Rising”:
A majority of those surveyed across Europe, 51%, believe that Jews are more loyal to Israel than to their own country, with a majority of respondents in Spain, Poland and Germany saying they believe that this statement is “probably true.”
High levels of those surveyed still believe in the traditional anti-Jewish canard that “Jews have too much power in the business world.” Overall, nearly 39% of all respondents believe this stereotype to be true.
Similarly, respondents still adhere to the notion that “Jews have too much power in international financial markets.” Overall, 44% cling to the traditional stereotype.
Large portions of the European public continue to believe that Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust. Overall, 47% of those surveyed believe it is “probably true.” In fact, a plurality of respondents in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Spain believe this notion to be true.
Overall, 20% of those surveyed continue to blame Jews for the death of Jesus.
Overall, 25% of those surveyed say that their opinion of Jews is influenced by the actions taken by the State of Israel. Of those respondents whose opinions are influenced, a majority, 52%, say that their opinion of Jews is worse as a result of the actions taken by Israel.
Nearly half of all respondents agree with the notion that “American Jews control U.S. Middle Eastern policy;” in Spain – 53%; in Poland – 56%.
These results are like something out of the Dark Ages. Not only do they expose Europe’s shame, they embolden the jihadists who want to destroy Israel. Despite the attacks in London and Madrid, Europe continues to turn a blind eye to the real threat — the only threat.
I expect the usual emails from the usual anonymous brave hearts who accuse me of crying “anti-Semitism” any time things don’t go my way. If this isn’t anti-Semitism, please enlighten me.
I propose the following questions be posed in the next “EuroPoll”:
Do you think that too many Muslims have immigrated to Europe?
Do you think that Muslims who settle in Europe are more dedicated to their religion than their new country?
Are your opinions of Muslims affected by the activities of the global jihadists?
Do you think the Islamic community in general bears any responsibility for the 9/11 or 7/7 attacks? If so, why? If not, why not?
What do you think the answers would be? But of course there will be no answers because there will be no poll. This sort of poll would set Europe ablaze. Dhimmis don’t like that.
